Water Sensors for Challenging Containers

World-Beam QS30H2O opposed mode water sensors provide a solution for detecting water-based liquids in clear, frosted, colored or even partially opaque bottles or containers.

Aw 3593 0809 S Bannr

The sensors use a specially designed 1450-nm sensing beam, which is inherently absorbed by water, to make the previously challenging clear bottle/clear water combination detection a high-contrast application. In addition, the sensors have high excess gain to “burn through” colored glass, labeled/decorated bottles and translucent milk jugs to detect the liquid contents. The water sensors consist of an emitter and a choice of either a low-power receiver, well-suited for detecting water in clear bottles, or a high-power receiver, designed to receive the emitted beam through partially opaque containers. Pricing starts at $285.
